    Webinar Description

    Increasingly post-secondary institutions (PSI) are recognizing that experience is an amazing teacher. This informal and non-formal learning can come from work, volunteer experiences, self-study, travel, parenting, and many more life experiences. Some PSIs have developed prior learning assessment (PLA) programs that support students in identifying, documenting and assessing this learning for advanced entry and/or credits in their programs of study. This webinar will share information on what the prior learning options are in BC, how to access these options, offering guidance on how identifying and documenting prior learning can lead to career advancement.
